Many months ago, it was discussed amongst the Facebook "RAF Ex Boy Entrants Group" that consideration be given to striking a Commemorative RAF Boy Entrants Medal, however as we wanted the theme to be strictly Royal Air Force, we needed the MoD's approval. Sadly, this was not obtained as they would not sanction an unofficial medal. However, they indicated they would consider a Commemorative Coin. After many weeks of communication, we finally agreed on a design and were issued with a license to use the licensed material in connection with the manufacture, sale and distribution of a "Royal Air Force Boy Entrant" Commemorative Coin. This Commemorative Coin has a limited quantity and production time. The material is Cupronickel 75/25 with a diameter of 38mm, slightly larger than a GSM and is approximately 3mm thick. The detail for the Obverse and Reverse as indicated in the manufacturer’s artwork is Die Struck. Personalisation is achieved by engraving, with the appropriate training station on the scroll as shown in the diagram, personal information engraved round the bottom edge.
This RAF Boy Entrant Commemorative Coin is available to all Ex Boy Entrants and/or their families and will be offered for a limited time. Those who wish to purchase one of these unique one-off Coins can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an order form. The manufacturer is Thomas Fattorini Ltd (https://fattorini.co.uk/about-us) they have supplied a dedicated order form for this product and this must be used for all orders.
The RAFBEA has no involvement whatsoever with the production of this Coin.
